The Tacoma comes in many different trims and configurations. There is a an X-Runner edition that features many sport truck options including a lowered stance, wider wheels, and ground effects.

New 2012 Toyota Tacoma
Judging by the attention it's been getting lately, the refreshed 2012 Toyota Tacoma that's been revealed by the automaker will see its market success at the top of the compact pickup market secured in full for coming years.
To update the looks, the new facelifted model sports a new hood, grille, headlights and front bumper among other minor details that should be enough to attract customers to this workhorse.
Changes have also been made to the interior, where the Enture system that made its debut on the Prius V has been introduced. It allows for voice, touch screen and steering wheel mounted controls of the audio and infotainment systems. In similar fashion to Ford's SYNC systems, it provides the latest info on the weather, sports, stocks and even the price of a tank of fuel. The revised instrument panel and controls offer a more high-end feel and overall better quality.
Under the bonnet, the 2.7-liter four-cylinder and 4.0-liter V6 engines carry over, as does the TRD Supercharger kit that Boosts horsepower from 236 to 334 for the V6.
For both Access and Double Cab models, the available option combinations are built on five core packages. The SR5 brings color-keyed overfenders and front bumper, chrome grille surround and chrome rear bumper, intermittent wipers and upgraded interior features and trim, including a leather-wrapped steering wheel and automatic transmission shift lever.
Meanwhile, TRD Sport gets suspension tuning and lower-profile 265/65 R17 tires on 17-inch alloy wheels. This package also gives Tacoma a sporty look with fog lamps, hood scoop, TRD graphics and color-keyed rear bumper, mirrors, grille surround and door handles.
TRD Big Brake systems provide better stopping power for sustained heavy use while also giving better pedal feel. No pricing information has been released yet, but we can expect little to be changed for this mild facelift job.
